"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - Is This 'Nightwing' ?

Sneak Peek new images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's currently shooting "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", revealing actor Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") filming a dialogue scene in the film. Rumors speculate McNairy could be playing an older, more mature 'Dick Grayson' aka the costumed vigilante 'Robin' who became 'Nightwing':

"...'Dick Grayson' gives up his identity as 'Robin', having been 'fired' as the sidekick of 'Batman'. 

"Uncertain what to do with his new-found independence, Dick considers giving up fighting crime to study law...

"... but he could not imagine his life in any other way.

"Turning to someone that he knows would understand, Dick asks 'Superman' what he should be, if not Robin. In reply, Superman tells a tale of long ago on 'Krypton', about a man who was cast out of his family, just like Dick. He dreamt of a world ruled by justice, and set out to protect the helpless and victimized as 'Nightwing'.

"Dick then decides to honor the legendary Kryptonian by renaming himself Nightwing..."
